is going to require compromise in a different type of deficit reduction plan. given all of those virginia jobs at stake, how can you say no to any type of tax and revenue increase, even if it is paired with a greater degree of spending cuts? >> getting our fiscal house in order in washington. i saw this as being another example of washington leaders not making decisions, putting off decisions to yet another commission, which, if it failed, as it did, it would be the responsibility of the federal government, which is national defense, as well as it being what is known to be over 200,000 technology and defense jobs in virginia. what we need to do is repeal or replace obamacare. but will sit trillions in spending, and that is harmful for business. i think we need to cut out and look at where there is redundancy in government. the government accountability office has put that forward. federal government employees, we have to reward them for cost- saving ideas. in the long term, a balanced budget amendment. tim said in the last debate that this is the right thing to do. now, he has, up with a
came in office. i inner hadited the biggest deficit in our history. the last four years it went up and 90 percent is consequence of two wars that were not paid for and tax cut that is were not paid for . prescription drug plan not paid for and worst economic crisis since the great depression. that accounts for 10 percent of the increase in the deficit. >> brian: front page of the new york times. stuart rather thaney it is over one trillion. every budget when they do the math he is over budget by a trillion dollars. >> gretchen: he said 10 percent. wars and the horrible recession he was begin that only accounts for 10 percent. >> yes. >> gretchen: what about the other 90 percent? >> steve: george bushes fault? >> gretchen: i am anding a question. >> you are exposing the attitude of the establishment media to all of president obama and his economic record. break it down. the president said i am only 10 percent responsible for a massive accumulation of debt. he is a big spender, a very big spender and that's the principle reason why we have a massive deficit of trillion a year. he has
at the deficit, everybody knows the problem with the deficit. who do we think is more likely to deal with the deficit? someone who has run it up over a trillion dollars every year he has been in office? is that too is going to do it to? or do we think governor romney, a businessman who is committed to fiscal responsibility is going to do it? who is going to do it to? if the barack obama is in the white house four years from now, he will have appointed one half of all federal judges and he will have changed the complexion of the added states supreme court for decades. can we stand that in this country? is that what we want to? no. foreign affairs. the president of the united states went to new york today, yesterday. other presidents have gone to meet with world leaders to sit down with the israelis and other allies, people who he needs to understand. and interesting article this morning about his failure to do that. he went to new york not to meet with world leaders, he is on "the view."

, but you can't stop watching it. you'll see it. back in 60 seconds. >> greta: from the $16 trillion deficit to the stubbornly high unemployment rate, president obama supportsers are finding lots of reasons to change their votes. they're speaking out in a new ad for the romney/ryan ticket. shot clock. >> i voted for bill clinton twice. i voted for clinton. >> i voted for clinton. >> al gore. >> i voted for al gore. >> al gore. >> i voted for barack obama. >> i voted for barack obama. >> barack obama in 2008. >> i had huge hopes. but you know what, i got burned in 2008. >> the trillions and trillions of dollars of deficits. >> this time. >> this year. >> i've changed. >> i'm changing my vote. >> i changed my mind. >> to mitt romney and paul ryan. >> to romney and ryan. >> to mitt romney and paul ryan. they have plans and ideas that i believe will work. >> greta: joining us our political panel, rick klein, michael crawley, and justin sink. rick? >> find me a voter for voted for mccain four years ago and now says obama. it's a small segment of the population. this is the kind of message. it's a
democrat bonn the president's deficit reduction committee with alan simpson and pretty good and we should point out he is there too but the president ignored a lot of his -- [talking over each other] >> he is seen as a guy who can bring democrats and republicans like him. the other guy out there whose name is bounced around and bounced around for four years is the ceo of black rock. i consider him a friend. the upside to larry is clearly there is no smarter guy on wall street that i know. he saw between trading and an entrepreneur. and associated -- the obama administration -- there's a european financial crisis, he understands financial instruments, and erskine bowles is a different dynamic. really going to do that. you want to make a deal with republicans and he is the guy to do it but larry as different depending on how you approach it. the wall street firms are going around. with larry taking the job, and natural successor at black rock. i just -- maybe he does. melissa: such a massive pay cut. [talking over each other] charlie: erskine bowles is no stranger to wall street. melissa: t
new book on the deficit challenges. it is all yours. >> you should have made the introductions longer. you are on a roll. >> thank you very much. we are both delighted to be here. we know there are so many issues people are interested in. none more important than the economy. that is why we're really thrilled to be here to take part in this debate. the election is only 42 days away. with every day, more questions pop up. the more the public wants answers. the candidates debate start next week. i think our opportunity today to talk with these two advisers cannot be more timely. i am just going to start by asking questions that david will come after. we're going to go back and forth. we will see where it goes. we will be looking to the audience for you to ask a question. why did your candidate believe that this economy is not creating more jobs? what would he do to change that and make things better? >> we came through the deepest recession since the great depression. >> democrat tim kaine and republican george allen are running for the senate this year. they participated in a debate, m
in the end a president piled up huge deficits that will cripple our children and grandchildren. look at the mess in the middle east where the president for ten days didn't tell the american people the truth about what happened in the death of an american ambassador. there's plenty of ammunition. but it has to be delivered in a firm systemically order way and people look up and go that's right. there's a simple test here. do you want four more years of obama? do you think this is the right direction? or do you think we need something new? i think a campaign which made that case clearly enough would carry ohio and florida by big margins. >> mitt romney was in westerville, ohio, today. i want to play a little clip of part of something he said and get your reaction to it. listen. >> okay. >> i want to bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> so he's trying to combine if i take it right the tax and the deficit argument. do you think that's a little too complicated for voters? do you think that re
the biggest deficit in history. >> gretchen: who is responsible for the other 90 percent. somebody else? we'll break down the numbers next. >> brian: washington post had a problem. >> key to a woman's heart scaring her half to death. staging a plane crash and popped the question. >> gretchen: that would be an automatic no. -[ taste buds ] donuts, donuts! -who are these guys? -oh, that's just my buds. -bacon. -my taste buds. -[ taste buds ] donuts. how about we try this new kind of fiber one cereal? you think you're going to slip some fiber by us? okay. ♪ fiber one is gonna make you smile. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing new fiber one nutty clusters and almonds. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. seems they haven't been moving much lately. but things are starting to turn around because of business people like yo
's deficit. let's go to clayton. >> big story making headlines this morning. several days after the attack on the u.s. consulate. this is the story that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came o
and the deficit is very important for a candidate to appeal to independents. mitt romney during the presidential primary here that he won convincingly eve emphasized that a great deal and i think that helped him with indianas. we are without a sales tax and income tax. people understand here that financial decisions have consequences. i can recall in 2000 when john mccain talked about the debt and the deficit the bush campaign at the time said what is he talking about? john mccain beat george bush here by 20 minutes in that prime rare re. bush retooled his message and barely won new hampshire by talking about the debt and the deficit. gregg: kevin in 2010 the last election there, if i understand it, if i recall correctly i think republicans won almost every office, but that doesn't mean it's going to happen that way this year, the pendulum could begin to swing in the other direction? >> that's correct. we had the largest republican sweep for a legislature of any state in the country in 2010. four years earlier in 2006 the democrats took control of the legislature at all levels of power for the f
even to grips witness. >> reporter: in 2009 president obama pledged to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term. obviously with the budget deficit still at 1.2 trillion that hasn't happened. how does he get past that at the debates? >> as he said, central to his entirely election argument is things were much worse than we thought they were. the country was in a much-worse situation and the americans who lived through the panic of 2008 tend to agree with him, they tend to easily recall what it was like when they opened their 401k statements before this election in 2008 and said, gee, this is not working. the president does have that going in his favor. the thing that makes him more vulnerable is this. this is where romney can really get him. the president said if he got the more than trillion dollars in stimulus packages that he wanted that he could get unemployment down under 8%, and that is not what happened. so what romney will argue is, that the president has failed and that the failures have been simply too expensive. and you know the new sewing began in romney
is firing back as in, hey, a humongous deficit is not patriotic. >> this is a land where economic freedom has allowed people to pursue their dreams and in doing so and achieving success, they lift us as a nation, they give us jobs, i will not apologize for success here and i will never apologize for america abroad. >> how's that for economic patriotism, whatever that is? so the talk back question for you this morning, is there such a thing as economic patriotism, facebook.com/carolcnn, your responses later this hour. >>> when we think of bounties in football now we think of the new orleans saints. saints' head coach, sean payton is on the golf course instead of the football field this season after the nfl suspended him for his role in bountygate. a former assistant of another team says his players were offered cash for big hits on opponents. these weren't nfl players. they were 10 year-olds. here's casey wian. >> reporter: the 2011 red cobra's pop warner football team went undefeated in the regular season. >> this was a team that knew it was on the verge of greatness and indeed went to th
promise they will not increase taxes on the poor and middle class but will make a dent in the deficit. this evening we look at romney's plan which has been called mathematically by one group and the president and his campaign have been all over it. chief national correspondent jim angle gets out his calculator tonight. >> mitt romney's budget plan will hurt the middle class. raising taxes on the average family by up to $2,000. getting a tax break, $250,000 to multimillionaires. >> one might think from this obama ad governor romney is specifically proposing to raise middle class taxes by $2,000. but that's not true. in fact, he penaled just the opposite prompting one romney advisor to blast the notion. >> that is the biggest political lie i have ever seen in my academic career. it's not romney's plan to do that. there is nothing to suggest he would do that. pure fiction. >> $1.2 trillion in tax deductions are claimed every year. everything from home mortgage interest to hundreds of millions and more arcane deductions. romney pledged to lower taxes by 20% for everyone. keep it revenue n
-knew would stay here. if you want to talk about closing the debt, the deficit. allow fracking. frac away. by the way, there is nothing, never has been any proof of disease or anything -- >> greg: they tried it with breast cancer -- >> bob: i wasn't supposed to talk about the disease part. andrea made a good point. marellus shale runs from ohio, to upper new york state. our friend denny harton you met. friend from west virginia. he convinced me how safe fracking was. it's an important point. if you drive buss with natural gas, it seems you can drive anything with natural gas, right? >> bob: he told me we didn't have the infrastructure to carry natural gas. why not invest in infrastructure to carry natural gas? not have so much dependency on foreign oil. >> kimberly: welcome to the conservative party, bob beckel. >> andrea: can you spread that in your party >> eric: >> bob: when you have that much of an energy resource and you know it runs things, the only problem, of course, is that -- well, anyway. >> greg: k.g. -- >> kimberly: i'm for fracking all the way and anything that gives us ener
never been asked. mr. president, you said you'd cut the deficit in half in your first term. it went up $6 trillion. you called bush unpatriotic for $4 trillion in eight years. simple question. mr. president, you predicted if we passed your stimulus by now we would have created 8 million new jobs. they still have fewer americans working. you know, mr. president, you said you'd b transparent. can we see the cables and wires tomorrow? when can we see them? >> how about this, mr. president you said you were taking our foreign policy in a different direction. the middle east is in flames against america and our ambassador is dead. mr. president, in sudan they will not allow u.s. marines to guard american soil. what do you have to say about that? >> sean: romney has got to understand, they're not going to ask these questions. it's his job to bring it up as of next wednesday. here's andrea mitchell, "nbc nightly news," and she says it's ambassador rice who was sent out with false information that we now know is false, as corroborated by a scrubbed websites at the state department to lie as as
did something. lazer focused on independents. they are more focused on the deficit. he did with the message. i am cutting taxings. but i am going to peel back deductions and not cutting back so much. that is getting to the deficit. if you cut back in too much in taxes the deficit will not get touched. he's trying to get the independents. and they said the crowd was overwhelming close to 4,000 >> steve: we would like you to e-mail us. do you think what the gop polster thinks there is it a media polling bias to stack the deck for the democrats or it is it. new york times cbs poll had mr. obama up by 10 points and local paper. columbus dispatch had him up by 5. and there in ohio. what does the governor think ohiians need from mr. romney? >> i think what romney needs to do. does he understand their problems. when he's out there he touches them. he has to touch as many people as he can and he has to keep coming back. he has to talk about policies and not people. it is it about lower tax less government and economic growth that landlords to jobs. only thing that matters is yobs a
with the numbers saying how, you know, it's a moral obligation to reduce the deficit, just ask 'em, well, explain us how the numbers work. because they don't. they don't have a deficit reduction plan. they have a deficit expansion plan. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: now, this morning governor romney jumped on those new gdp figures, said it reinforces his charge that this country cannot afford another four years of president obama and that his five-point plan for is the right prescription for this country. this is what he said. >> those five things i describe will get america's economy going again, will help people find jobs that need those jobs, will get take-home pay to come up again. this is not a mystery. we know how to do it, america has faced challenges before. when we have strong leaders, when we have people who know how to lead and where to get it -- we can get it done. and i am and we will. >> reporter: governor romney looking more toward the future and what this country would be like under a romney administration, making this as much about a choice as it has been so far about a refe
is liberal to cut spending? i think is liberal to cut taxes when you are operating a deficit, because you are spending money. >> i do not think your labels mean a lot. what i have said from the beginning -- the centerpiece of our problems is the national debt. we simply have to look at this. whether we do it this year because of the way our economy is or next year, a two-door 0.3 trillion -- 2.3 doris trillion -- >> i want you to respond to this. >> i'm glad there is a clear contrast between the two of us. i do not believe we should raise taxes. i do not think the problem is that americans are not taxed enough. mr. sadler has been very candid that he would consider raising taxes on every single tax and who pays income tax is. >> that is not fair. >> if you would consider allowing all of the bush tax cuts to expire, that would raise taxes on every single tax and who pays income tax. are the texans to pay income taxes we would not raise taxes on? you did not have an answer. >> you will not put words in my mouth. i would say, the first place, we have to balance the budget, cut spending, and
servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we can fix this problem and solve our many other great challenges before the end of the year and the american people can get back to work. that's what they desire us to do. >> i think both of these presidential candidates are gearing up for their one presidential debate in october as well. i'm looking forward to th
president obama leading and claims to correct the bias, turning romney deficits into commanding romney leads. the idea behind is it simple. all polls base the outcome on what pollsters believe the electorate will look like, how many democrats versus how many republicans they think will actually turn out. getting that partisan makeup wrong can tilt the predictions. the people that don't believe the polls say thistime, pollsters think the 2012 electorate will look a lot like 2008 and this they say is wrong. notice i said this time. back in 2004, democrats complained that the polls which showed george w. bush leading were overestimating the number of republicans who would vote. they were wrong. the polls were right. in 2000, al gore said don't believe the polls, polls showed him losing narrowly. polls were right. in fact, it's hard to find an example of the polls on average getting it wrong unless you go back to 1948, when they predicted thomas dewey defeated president harry truman. cnn political contributor ari fleischer joins us. he's an occasionally unpaid communications advisor for the romn
would cut the deficit in half in his first term. he gave us $6 trillion in new obama debt, in four years. he called push unpatriotic and irresponsible for $4 trillion in debt in eight years. so why would we expect he's going to keep his promise on any of these things? >> well, sean, you and i know about this time four years ago the economy collapsed. it was the result, i believe, and the president believes, of failed policies of george bush. that's what he walked into. very different world than anything in the campaign. here's what he did. he walked into office. we were shedding 750,000 jobs a month. you know all this. >> sean: wait a minute. >> let me finish. now we've created 5 million jobs over four years. >> sean: that's not true. that's not true, sir. sir, there are fewer americans working than when he took office. that is a fact. you get it right from the bureau of labor and statistics. here's the point, when he ran in 2008 he said it's the worst economy since the great depression. he told it was bad. he said and projected that if we pass a stimulus -- he's already in office now --
on tv the other day and says, well, the debt and the deficit in the country, now, that's a problem in the long term, but it's not a short-term problem. the truth the average american understands the truth. the american government can't spend itself rich just like the american family want spend itself rich. if just the debt is a long-term problem, if you wait till the long term, the kinds of changes you'll have to make, the kind of cuts, the kind of cracking-down are unbelievable by the standards that if we deal with this today it is not that big a deal. >> greta: governor, they're not even working on it. i mean, nothing is being done by anybody to work on it. absolutely zero. >> in all fairness, nothing has been done by barack obama. i mean, barack obama hasn't introduced a budget in three years that a democrat would vote for, but paul ryan has. >> greta: if i were a republican right now, i'd be here in washington, saying where's the president? >> but paul ryan has produced budgets, and the democrats say these terrible draconian budgets -- under paul ryan's budget, spending goes up
